People love outdoor dining and unique experiences that offer a fun, laid-back vibe. That’s exactly what Norton’s Brewing Company provides with their garden igloos that were introduced last year. Good news is they are back this winter season!
The garden igloos are basically plastic domes that are heated inside and provide seating to protect you from the elements. Norton’s has many of set up in their beer garden and they are one of the coolest things to do to in Wichita.
This year, they built floating decks for each one to sit on, as well as upgraded their covers and doorways for them. They’ve also added more game in each of them and outfitted them with better tables, lighting and cushions. All in all, they are now more aesthetic pleasing. The full food/cocktail/and beer menus will be available, with full service dedicated to each one.
The garden igloos seat up to six people. Each igloo has its own electric fireplace heater, a dedicated Bluetooth speaker, a little table and ample seating for your party.
Reserving them was easy and something that has to be done ahead of time because they do get booked up quickly. If you’d like, you can head to their website and reserve yours there. A $25 non-refundable deposit is required for all reservations. The reservations are for 1 and a half hour time blocks. If you want to reserve the igloo for 3 hours, a food/drink minimum of $300 is required plus a non-refundable deposit of $50. With a party of six, that shouldn’t be too hard to hit. Our party’s tab after an hour and a half was at $200.
A few more things to note: The igloos are for 21+, no pets and no smoking inside. You should arrive 10 minutes before your reservation time. All members of your party should be present when they seat you. And lastly, your party is required to be on one check with an automatic 20% gratuity. When we tabbed out, we just handed our server our cards and asked to have him split the tab evenly. It’s so much easier than breaking it all out with who had what to eat and drink.
We had an awesome time inside the igloo when we stopped by last year and can’t wait to check them out again this year. Check out the new igloos pictures below!
